Toyota of Clermont explores true cost to own

When you're out shopping for a new car and perusing our new Toyota near Orlando, you definitely have a lot of things to consider. You have to think about make/model, budget, performance, features, fuel efficiency, and more. However, we can bet there's one thing you haven't taken into consideration while researching your next ride - true cost to own! 

True cost to own

What is true cost to own? 

To put it simply, this concept is the cost it will run you to operate your new Toyota near Orlando for five years. The true cost to own is calculated by factors like:

  • Depreciation (this is how much value the car loses in between the time you drive it off the lot and the five-year mark)
  • Fuel costs
  • Insurance costs for the car (your annual premium) 
  • Interest on the car's financing and fees
  • Routine maintenance (both scheduled and unscheduled) and repairs (any repairs not covered by the warranties that the new Toyota comes with)
  • Any tax rebates that might be available for operating the car (you'll see these in some states for driving a new Toyota hybrid or electric car)

Calculate the true cost to own of your new Toyota near Orlando! 

All of these factors are combined to get an estimate of what it will REALLY cost you to own the car over five years, not just what your monthly car payments will amount to. However, in order to calculate true cost to own for a new Toyota near Orlando, you have to assume that:

  • Your loan term is 5 years (60 months)
  • You put down 10% for a down payment on your new vehicle 
  • You'll operate the car for about 15,000 miles a year
  • You're not leasing the car but using traditional car financing 
  • You have above-average credit (this determines finance rates)
